Reconstruction of a normal glenohumeral relationship is desirable for a successful arthroplasty. Double-contrast computed tomography was performed on 49 healthy shoulders in young volunteers. For creation of a uniform spatial reference system, the subjects were positioned in a thoracobrachial orthosis with the arm adducted in the coronal plane and the(More)

Most systems use screws to achieve this fixation. The suprascapular nerve passes close to the glenoid and is known to be at risk of injury when devices and sutures are inserted into the glenoid.
